Top secret entertainment hub being built in Toronto

If you've been in the vicinity of Roundhouse Park recently you might have wondered about the massive construction site that's taken over the area. Turns out it's a top secret entertainment hub that MLSE is building for the NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto.

Initial rumours suggested that the hub might include an outdoor basketball court but that's not happening. Instead, it'll function as a live music venue that will feature high profile performers expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

The hub, dubbed True North, will host what MLSE calls "the hottest private parties and events of NBA All-Star 2016." The custom built facility will be used from February 12 to 14 and feature performances by, among others, Snoop Dogg as DJ Snoopadelic.
